Relevant. Engaging. Affirming. Liberating.

Our goal is to develop programming that provides academic and enrichment opportunities to communities that are historically underrepresented. 

The programs utilize project-based learning and experiential learning as a focal point of the opportunities we provide.



STEM Rising blends content mastery, meaningful work, and personal connection to create powerful learning experiences, in terms of both academic achievement and students’ personal growth.

Engaged hearts and minds – Projects that provide real-world relevance for learning. Students can solve problems that are important to them and their communities.
Deeper learning – Students are better able to apply what they know to new situations.
Exposure to careers – Students interact with professionals and organizations, and their community, and can develop career interests.
A sense of purpose – A great project can be transformative for students. Seeing a real-world impact gives them a sense of agency and purpose.
Success skills – Students gain skills valuable in today’s workplace and in life, such as how to take initiative, work responsibly, solve problems, collaborate in teams, and communicate ideas.
Creativity and technology – Students enjoy using a spectrum of technology tools from research and collaboration through product creation and presentation.
